Alert to Perth motorists - fill up now to beat the petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow.

FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 13 July 2022), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 20 cents per litre (cpl) to 209.7 cpl. 7-Eleven hiking by up to 38 cpl up to 225.9 cpl; Coles Express and Ampol up to 219.9 cpl; BP up to 217.9 cpl; Caltex Woolworths up to 215.9 cpl; Puma up to 215.7 cpl; and Vibe up to 207.7 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 27 individual sites offering prices below 187 cpl, so consumers should check the FuelWatch website to find the lowest price near them. Buying fuel from the cheapest site rather than the most expensive, a difference of 46 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $27 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 184.9 cpl at BP 2go Morrison Road (Midvale) and BP Maida Vale in the East;
  • 181.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Ascot in the South; and
  • 183.3 cpl at Shell Alkimos in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 184.5 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 180.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 180.9 cpl at Vibe Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 179.9 cpl at Vibe Morley in the North.

To find the cheapest fuel at any time, check the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site which features an interactive map. After 2.30pm each day both today’s and tomorrow’s prices are available. Also, get a daily update by subscribing to free email alerts or phone 1300 30 40 54.
